Did you know the Lunar New Year is a public holiday in countries such as Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, North Korea, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Vietnam?
For Vietnam, Tet Nguyen Dan or Tet is the most important and popular holiday and festival. It is the Lunar New Year marking the arrival of spring based on the Lunar calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The name Tet Nguyen Dan is Sino-Vietnamese for Feast of the very First Morning.
Tet takes place from the first day of the first month of the Lunar calendar (around late January or early February) until at least the third day. Many Vietnamese prepare for Tet by cooking special holiday foods and cleaning their house. There are a lot of customs practiced during Tet such as visiting a person’s house on the first day of the new year (xông nhà), ancestral worship, wishing New Year’s greetings, giving lucky money to children and elderly people and opening a shop.
